Stoked Rider: Alaska Alien is a deadly serious you-against-the-mountain scenario, where the goal of the game is to basically get down in one piece from high peaks based in a huge procedurally created mountain-area. AGEIA PhysX brings huge new possibilities to the game with amazing fluid particle effects. This game-title utilizes AGEIA PhysX to simulate the snowboard-terrain interaction and offers full PhysX hardware support. Riders carving down the hill can trigger sluff avalanches simulated from thousands of individual particles.
These sluff-avalanches can be deadly and this fact also is a reality for this snowboard game. Each ride down the mountain can be a dramatically different experience thanks to the ability to physically simulate the terrain on the AGEIA hardware. Trees aren't just static objects placed on the hill - they interact with the player realistically based on the level of impact and can provide cover from sluff avalanches.
